Richter City Rebels are all about Mardi Gras and the musical melting pot of Louisiana.
They're an ensemble band, fresh off a tour of the South Island.
They've headlined the Jazz festival, Tora Tora Tora, Taranaki Arts Festival, National Jazz Festival, CubaDupa, and Meridian Gardens Magic. Next they're off to Coastella in Kapiti.
Their first live album Rebels Take Havana was released in 2012, and a studio recording We Do It Like That, then a second live album, Live At Tora in 2016.
They join Jesse Mulligan from RNZ's Wellington studio with horns, percussion and vocals, some James Brown charisma and the swagger of Big Daddy Kane and Professor Longhair.
